We are a family of mountain lovers and we manage with enthusiasm this little B&B born many years ago in the old family home, the ideal starting point for your mountain holidays.
The welcome we offer resembles us: you will always find one of us waiting for you to come back from your trips, a bit like at home, in winter with the fireplace on and in summer in the garden overlooking the Mont Blanc.
Our name was chosen by the grandfather and tells a small and important part of the history of these places: up until a few years ago the first Mont Blanc cable car was in front of the hotel.
The atmosphere is homely, around us a lot of nature, quietness, a spectacular view of Mont Blanc, the river and, if you pay attention, wild little animals that spy on you during walks in the woods.
Remember to bring your puppies with you, they are welcome to us and they will surely love to roam in the mountains with you
If you are looking for a comfortable place with the charm of informality and if you seem to look like us, come and visit us, we look forward to meeting you!
We prefer calm to hurry, quality over quantity and we appreciate simplicity.
Mountain for us is synonymous with slowness and reflection, very far from the city rhythm.
Here you are on holiday and our advice is to turn off the mobile, relax and play sports: you will immediately see the beneficial effects of a holiday to the rhythm of nature.
In summer we will advise you on walks for all tastes and levels to enjoy the days in the open air, in winter you can immerse yourself in snowy landscapes that invite you to have fun skiing or regenerating walks with snowshoes.
We are eco-friendly and we are inspired by responsible and sustainable tourism, trying to limit waste and striving to respect the environment.
We choose as much as possible products at 0 km and ecological detergents for cleaning.
We aim to be a zero waste reality and the breakfast buffet is constantly replenished, to avoid unnecessary food waste.
We suggest you fill the bottle at the source next to the hotel and drink the fresh tap water.
